installing and anchoring the mast, screw jacks for easy and fast leveling of
the base unit, an adjustable open basket option for material transport, and a
110-volt service outlet provided on board.
Electric Scissor Lifts: JLG
the ES Series, these scissor lifts are designed to provide longer duty cycles,
higher capacities, and larger platforms. The machines feature an electric drive
system that uses two independent electric motors for the drive wheels. The
units also incorporate a system that combines the hydraulic lift pump,
reservoir and motor with the lift cylinder into a single assembly. For ease of
operation, an improved control station permits one-handed control of both the
proportional drive and lift functions. The platform decks are manufactured from
non-corrosive aluminum with non-skid strips.
Ladder Stabilizer: Basemate Ladder Levelling Systems Inc.
ladder leveler is designed to offer a solution to wobbly, unsafe ladders. The
product provides a wider, more stable platform and quickly adjusts to uneven
terrain, helping to make any extension ladder safer and easier to use. The
Basemate exceeds Grade 1 CDN and type 1A USA ladder requirements, is made of
hardened steel and is insured by Lloyds of London. Units feature a patented
triple action locking system with one-foot operation. The leveler can be
installed to most fiberglass, aluminum and wood extension ladders, and use
fabricated steel legs and brackets. The Basemate has been weight-tested to
Raxtar hoists, distributed by Hydro-Mobile in North America, have modular cages
that are made with light materials that are solid yet made to be easy to
repair. Controlled by a joystick an electronic panel or a driverless mode, the
hoists can operate on either side of the mast and integrate the “Flex-Drive”
system, a 3-D concept that results in a smoother drive and leads to less wear
on racks, pinions, ties, and electronic devices. The hoists also integrate
technologies that have been specifically developed and customized to the needs
of rental companies such as a remote problem-solving system that allows
failures to be fixed from a distance. Raxtar’s masts are also compatible with
Scaffold Extending Brace: T-Brace
building product is designed to create greater span capacity on scaffolding for
carpenters, masons, siding and stucco contractors, as well as any construction
professional. The patented T-Brace is made to increase span and rigidity of
walk-boards and scaffolding planks on project sites. The product works with
pump jacks, ladder jacks, sawhorses, site-built riggings, and various
scaffolding systems. It allows for longer spans between supports without
intermediate bracing. T-Brace’s powder-coated steel construction provides
durability and can withstand up to 500 pounds of weight. One T-Brace weighs
just 3.3 pounds and is easily transported from site to site.
Pump Jack System: Werner Ladder Co.
system is a type of supported scaffold in which the work platform moves up and
down on vertical poles, keeping the end user a set distance from the work
surface. Pump jacks can be used for siding applications, roofing, painting and
stuccoing. Additionally, pump jacks are used in applications where two
buildings are so close together that a ladder jack system cannot be installed
at the appropriate angle. A plank is raised by using your foot to “pump” the
jack and then is lowered by engaging and turning a hand crank. Steel pump jacks
are made of pressed metal.
Utility Scaffold: Bil-Jax Inc.
Pro-Jax Utility Scaffold combines patented safety features with load capacity.
It measures 29 inches wide so it is narrow enough for a single user to maneuver
the unit through doorways. The sturdy steel construction reinforces a plywood
deck and supports 1,000 pounds. Stacked units provide a maximum working height
above 23 feet. The patented Saf-T-Lok allows operators to adjust the platform
height in 2-inch increments, ensuring that the platform remains level and
locked securely during use. Patented knurled rungs provide an added measure of
safety. It is available with 6-, 8-, and 10-foot brace lengths.
